Optical Transimpedance Amplifiers
Analog Devices optical transimpedance amplifiers offer a complete, high performance, single chip solution for converting photodiode current into a differential voltage input. Supporting data rates from 155 Mbps to 11.1 Gbps, our transimpedance amplifiers are ideally suited for data communications and telecommunications applications supporting lay protocols including 1×, 2×, 4×, and 8× Fibre Channel, 10GBASE-LX4, SONET/SDH up to OC-192 with FEC, and 10 Gigabit Ethernet. Our transimpedance amplifiers feature low input referred noise current, high input current, and low power dissipation.
Analog Photodiode Wizard Design Tool
Use Photodiode Wizard to design a transimpedance amplifier circuit to interface with a photodiode. Select a photodiode from the library included in the tool, or enter custom photodiode specifications. Quickly observe tradeoffs between Bandwidth, Peaking (Q), and ENOB/SNR. Modify circuit parameters, and immediately see results in plots for pulse response, frequency response, and noise gain.
